I think my relationship with my mother has been challenged since the say I was born. Maybe before then actually. We’ve always struggled and now that I am an adult I can choose how much contact I want to have with her finally. If you knew all the details you’d probably advocate for cutting her out or off entirely. She’s real umm…interesting that’s for sure. The dilemma though is I am a Godly woman and want to do my best to love her the way He does…exactly where she is at. This is not always easy because where she’s at is often results in her constant attempts to upset or aggravate me. Often I’m aggravated after just a few minutes in her company; it’s sad really, but she just doesn’t play nice. I’m not sure she ever has. Even my son has asked me “what is wrong with your mother?” She is though…still my mother.
Mother’s Day is coming and two of her favorite things are tulips and koala bears. For Christmas we got her some koala granola bars and cereal. I made her this card for Mother’s Day:
The card base is Core’dinations, as are the tulips and stems. The koala is cut with a textured stack I got at Wal Mart…I want to say it is Colorbok but I’m not sure. Pink feet on the koala is from my scraps and I have no clue about the origin. The tulips were a free SVG file and the koala is from the Cuddly Animals Part II Collection from SVG Cuts. They have some great stuff…I’ll be back later today or tomorrow with yet another SVG Cuts project.
